    Description:  This week on CounterSpin: Barack Obama described beheadings by the extremist group ISIS as  “an assault on all humanity,” but when US ally Saudi Arabia executed 47 people on January 2, many by beheading, the administration expressed “concern” and urged “restraint.” Media don’t make it easy to make sense of US policy in the Gulf region. We’ll get some context from Toby Craig Jones, associate professor of history at Rutgers University and author of Desert Kingdom: How Oil and Water Forged Modern Saudi Arabia.

This is part and parcel of the effort of dismantling a progressive America. So this is about trying to destroy the public employee unions and ultimately destroy the private sector unions, and that will follow." – Caroline Fredrickson, president of the American Constitution Society, commenting on what's at stake in the Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association case that will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 11, 2016.

    Program Summary Jan. 4, 2016


    Hear Rep. Bill Otto and "the Lineball Sisters" discuss during the 2nd hour all manner of Kansas small town life after these news stories.


    1st HOUR - Descripton: Retired Sr. CIA analyst Ray McGovern on Sounds of Dissent on WZBC 90.3 FM Boston recorded January 2, 2016.  Did rebels in Syria use sarin gas in 2013, rather than President Assad? Turkish member of parliament Eren Erdem cited evidence on December 10, 2015 that the Turkish government was complicit in delivery of sarin gas to Syrian rebels before the 2013 attack that killed hundreds in Ghouta, Syria.

    Over a dozen retired CIA, State Dept., NSA and Army staffers have signed an open memo to Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov asking for the evidence on who used the chemical weapons in Ghouta, Syria on August 21, 2013.

    Retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern discusses the memo a group of veteran intelligence professionals wrote about the conflicting claims on whether chemical weapons were used by Syria's President Assad or by rebels fighting him in the bloody civil war that's killed over 200,000.

    Ray McGovern's site is http://www.raymcgovern.com/

    Ray McGovern served Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Reagan as a writer of the President's Daily Brief, and gave the daily CIA briefing to President Ronald Reagan personally, and to Vice President George H.W. Bush, the former Director of the CIA. McGovern is a member of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity.


    2nd HOUR - Co-hosted during the second hour with Rep. Bill Otto, formerly of the 9th district, in the Kansas legislature listen in to conversations with "Traditional Republicans" who have lived small town life in Kansas across the generations.
